ᴱQ. Wendelin f.
Qenya name for the mother of Tinúviel (later S. Melian) in the earliest Lost Tales (LT1/115), an elaboration of wen(di) “maid”, as suggested by Christopher Tolkien (LT1A/Wendelin).
Conceptual Development: This name initially appeared in the alternate form Tindriel of unclear meaning (LT1/106, 131).
See S. Melian for further discussion.
